Ive Been crying

Well I been crying since the day you left.

You went away and left me in a mess.

Well I been crying all day.
Please write me a letter say your coming back some day.

I went to the doctor and check my self.
He was concerned about my state of health.

Coz Ive been crying all day.
When you travel round can you drop back my way.
.........................................................................
I made me a promise to the stary skies.
Forgive your indesrcetions and your blatant lies.

All you have to say is that your coming home again.

.........................................................................

Now your been gone just a year or two.
I still get indegestion and Ive had the flue.

But Im still crying all day.

Wont you give me a call and say your coming back to stay.

Wont you give me a call and say your coming back to stay.

Wont you give me a call and say your coming back to stay.

Hi Rob,

Nice song. I enjoyed your vocal - sounds like a mix of early Elvis and Johnny Cash - very cool vibe.

Bob

Your songs all seem to have that "laid back" easy to listen to feeling. I like that.
Nice vocals!

Rob,

Another good one! Like has been said, this has a nice "Elvis" quality. Good job!

Cool rockabilly. Agree with SpaceDog - those backup singers answering was perfect touch. You had my toes tapping.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.

Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
